Styling Report: 4 looks from Femme Luxe

Femme Luxe are an online brand that I’ve been following for a while and if you like fashion, you will definitely have come across them on Instagram by now. Their Instagram feed is full of gorgeous, bronzed models showcasing their clothing and they are a brand that specialise in affordable sassy outfits. I love how there are a lot of bright colours and prints in their range and they also offer a selection of shoes and accessories so they have everything covered! They stock a selection of loungewear, activewear, basics, a HUGE range of dresses and trend led pieces that are perfect for keeping your wardrobe looking stylish.

I would say that Femme Luxe are an online destination if you are looking for an outfit that is ‘boujee on a budget’ as not only are they reasonably priced, they also offer flash sales and discount offers regularly.

I wanted to give their clothing a try and was kindly gifted 4 pieces from their website to style. I’ve put together different looks with these items and this blog post is to share my thoughts on what I picked out. I will be looking at the quality, the fit,and to test out if Femme Luxe clothing is as good as it looks online. So let’s get into this style report with the first item:

Black Digits, Printed slogan oversized T shirt dress – Adele

I love a t-shirt dress and I’ve been looking for one with long sleeves for ages, so I was excited to try this piece. I went for a size medium which on the website says this is a UK 8-10. I’m usually around a size 10 but think I could have gone down a size with this. That aside, it was meant to be oversized and was still a decent fit. I was impressed with how soft the cotton was and I liked the printed digits on the front.

I styled this dress with heeled sock boots and my Jimmy Choo silver handbag, but it will look equally as good in the day time with chunky trainers and a belt bag or mini rucksack for an effortless, off duty look.

Rose One Shoulder Crop Top – Keeley

The second item I picked out was this cute one shoulder crop top. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this item but I absolutely loved it and am tempted to get it in a few more colours. They also have this available in several neon shades, animal prints and classic neutrals so there is a good selection to choose from. I have gone for a sports luxe feel and styled this top with some Adidas leggings, Nike air force one trainers and a denim jacket, but dressed it up with a chunky necklace to complete the outfit. This top will look amazing with jeans and boots, or paired with a body con skirt for a glam night out.

Red Basic Leggings – Gracelynn

You can never go wrong with adding basic items into your wardrobe and leggings are a really easy item to throw on at the weekend with a slogan t-shirt in the summer, just as well as with a chunky knit jumper in the Winter months. These are are those ‘go to’ essential items that you will wear all year round and what every girl needs in her wardrobe. I picked out these red leggings as I liked the idea of something a bit different to the usual black/neutral leggings that I would usually wear.

I styled the leggings with a classic white, slightly oversized t shirt with leopard print converse pumps and matching leopard print Jimmy Choo handbag. Overall, I really liked this final look and will love wearing these. I went for a size S/M which the website advises is a UK 8-10. The only other size option is a M/L which would be a 12-14. I would have liked to have seen an in-between size option personally but these fit nicely and they have a bit of stretch to them.

Black Croc Print PU Leggings – Freya

The final item that I picked out were these black croc print, faux leather leggings. These are perfect for putting together a chic and polished look. You can really dress these up with some fabulous heels for either a meetings during the day or cocktails after work. I styled them here with a pair of Jimmy Choo heels and a basic black cashmere top.

I really love the embossed crocodile print effect too which is a nice subtle touch. These have a higher waist which really helps to create a gorgeous slimline silhouette. I went for a UK 12 just incase as I’ve tried similar items in the past and found they tend to run quite small. However, these were the opposite and ideally I should have gone for my actual size. That’s the only thing with online shopping, that it can be a bit of a guessing game on what size to choose.

Final verdict

Overall, I was impressed with the items I picked out from Femme Luxe and will definitely try more items from their range in the future. You can easily pick up an outfit for a reasonable price and there are a lot of outfits that you could put together for a summer holiday. Sizing can be tricky with buying clothing online but most companies have simple exchange or refund policies now so this isn’t really a big deal. My favourite piece that I tried would be the Adele t-shirt dress and I would quite like to try some of the other dresses that they have.

Femme Luxe are adding new pieces to their website regularly so you can keep up to date with all of their latest items HERE.

The return of Tie Dye for Spring/Summer 19

Tie dye has been in fashion hiding for years. That was until it started popping up again on celebs such as Beyoncé and Justin Bieber wearing the colourful print. Prada, Proenza Schouler and Stella McCartney took it under their wing and brought it back to the catwalk and now everyone is getting in on the trend. It’s official – Tie dye is back!

California cool, t shirts are the easiest way to wear this trend but it’s evolved for the modern day and we are now seeing it in new ways such as on denim at Proenza Schouler or used on mini dresses or Aline skirts at Prada.

What is Tie Dye..

Tie Dye has always historically been associated with hippies, and the flower power era of the 60s and 70s. It’s best known for it’s use of bright colours and bold patterns such as the spiral, mandala and peace sign.

The process typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, followed by the application of brightly coloured dies. The manipulations of the fabric prior to application of dye are called resists as they partially or completely prevent the dye from colouring the fabric. So each piece that is made in this way is unique and different and you will not have two pieces that are exactly the same.

Fast forward to today and tie dye has been given a modern twist and there’s a fresh take on the trend.

How to wear it..

You can go as bold as you dare with this trend. If you are not feeling as confident to wear a splash of bright colours in a garment then you can still enjoy it with accessories instead. Try a scarf or a handbag – I’m really loving the Prada tie dye bags at the moment.

Boohoo.com Slogan T-shirts – the easy to wear trend that I am loving

Slogan t-shirts have been having a moment for a while now and if you follow me on Instagram you will know that I have a slight obsession with them! They are such an easy go to item in your wardrobe which you can wear as either part of a casual weekend outfit, or as a stylish dressed up evening look. I personally like to pair them with denim such as jeans or a distressed skirt – or even with a matching denim co-ord which is also one of my latest favourite trends at the moment. They are also really easy to throw over a pair of cycling shorts or leggings for a quick and stylish look.

Practically every store you go into at the moment will have more than one slogan t-shirt design to choose from. There is literally something for everyone and you can wear these depending on your mood on the day which I love. This could be anything from sassy sayings, to cute words, or place names. The choices are endless. My personal favourite selection this month is from Boohoo.com as they have a good range of colours and really cute quirky slogans. All of their t-shirts are so affordable as well, so this is such an easy trend for anyone add into their wardrobe, knowing that they will create a great outfit easily.
